    Wyrm has gained 4 grams since I got him. Hes a whole 13 grams now. Eating between 5-10 dubia a night (more if they are small).

    As requested here are some pics of his "hunting" pen.

    New Update - we are 20 grams now.
    Just finished a shed, and all his toes and the tail tip seem just fine.
    Taming is going slow, but he at least responds to my voice and comes out for hand feeding twice a day (at night when I give him his bugs, and in the morning when I feed any left in his bowl). Just not yet willing to climb up on my hand yet.

    Glad everything is going well I just hope you don’t end up with one of those that never tolerate handling. I kept this particular Leo for 18 years, age was unknow(he was an adult when they handed him to me) and he never changed. I would have liked him to at least tolerate me holding him during examination, but he would run like crazy. He was fine with me putting my hand in the enclosure, just don’t take him out!

    Give us updates every now and then. Pictures are always appreciated

    so far i've kept handling short, just checking toes and such, and when cleaning. He doesn't scream anymore lol - and will sit fairly still if I cup my hand over him like a cave. I wasn't going to really start pushing him at longer handling times until he's 35+ grams. If it takes a year or two thats fine, he's gonna be with me for a long time, I'm in no rush

    One of the benefits of reptiles vs mammals - he's never going to be as needy as my cats and ferrets
